Camps for Sports Lovers

K5 – 8th grade

Connect with sports on the Karl Community Campus in Whitefish Bay. Many camps travel throughout the Milwaukee area creating unique experiences for our campers.

Creating a camp community
Taking a community building approach to specialty day camps, all campers begin each day with Morning Assembly before each group heads off to dive deeper into their selected program. On Friday afternoons, the whole camp community gathers to wrap up the week and enjoy a fun Shabbat celebration just prior to the end of the regular camp day.

Typical camp day 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
All JCC day camps offer extended care to fit the schedules of busy families.
Before Care 7:00-9:00 AM – $20/week
After Care 4:00-6:00 PM (5:30 Fridays) – $20/week
Before & After Care Combo – $35/week
